BeagleBone Green Gateway
Seeed Studio BeagleBone® Green Gateway is a low cost, open-source, community supported development platform for developers and hobbyists. It is a joint effort by BeagleBoard.org and Seeed Studio. It is based on the classical open-source hardware design of BeagleBone® Black and developed into this differentiated version. The Seeed Studio BeagleBone® Green Gateway includes two Grove connectors, making it easier to connect to the large family of Grove sensors. The on-board HDMI and Ethernet are removed to make room for these wireless features and Grove connectors.
The Seeed Studio BeagleBone® Green Gateway is a combination of Seeed Studio BeagleBone® Green and Seeed Studio BeagleBone® Green Wireless, equipped with both Ethernet and Wireless connectivity.
Boot Linux in less 10 seconds and get started on development in less than 5 minutes with just a single USB cable.

Adafruit Blinka Installation
We use a special library called adafruit_blinka (named after Blinka, the CircuitPython mascot) to provide the layer that translates the CircuitPython hardware API to whatever library the Linux board provides.
For example, on Raspberry Pi we use the python RPi.GPIO library. For any I2C interfacing we'll use ioctl messages to the /dev/i2c device. For SPI we'll use the spidev python library, etc. These details don't matter so much because they all happen underneath the adafruit_blinka layer.
